The Taunton team are delighted to welcome back Corey Sutherland as an Architecture student. Corey started working at Jonathan Rhind Architects as an Apprentice Technician before deciding to build on his experience and enrol on a full time Architecture degree at the University of Plymouth. Having completed his first year, Corey is going to work for the practice over the summer before resuming his course in September.

Corey has enjoyed seeing how some of the projects that he was working on before he left Jonathan Rhind have progressed in his absence and has plunged straight back into technical design; launching into electrical drawings for a Manor extension, and gaining an understanding of the drainage requirements for a farmhouse with penetrating damp.

Having already experienced working in the built environment started him on the right footing for his course and he worked on some exciting projects during his first year at Plymouth.

Highlights include:

  • Helping to design and build an outdoor classroom/firepit/forest school for a local primary school using only recycled timber, which won an award for professional practice and technology.
  • A study trip to Barcelona in which he had to research and analyse some of the City’s iconic architecture (and managed to fit in a quick trip to see Barcelona play Real Madrid in the third largest football stadium in the world – important research into scale and mass in architecture!)
  • A conservation project for Amur Leopards at Dartmoor Zoo, in which he had to design an enclosure for two leopards and an information hut for the public to learn about the scheme. Corey incorporated an eco-brick recycled plastic bottles sustainable walling system into his design which was used as part of an exhibition at the London Festival of Architecture.

It is great to have Corey back working on projects with us, if only briefly before he returns to university.

If you are inspired to follow a career in conservation Architecture have a look at our recruitment page or send us an email to see whether we might have a position that is suitable.
